When should I meet with my academic advisor?

New Students (have not attended a class yet) must first complete a mandatory New Student Orientation. If you attend the on-campus orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor and register for classes during the orientation session. If you complete the online orientation, but need help selecting courses or registering, you can visit the Academic Advising Center. Once you start classes at CFCC, you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office with the name of your assigned faculty advisor. Be sure to see your assigned faculty advisor during the pre-registration advising period each term. Check your CFCC email for announcements about advising and your priority registration dates.

Current Students should schedule an appointment with your assigned faculty advisor during the pre-registration advising period. For the name of your advisor, check your program evaluation in WebAdvisor. If you need additional assistance, your faculty advisor will refer you to the Academic Advising Center.

Returning students (have been away for 1 or more semesters) should check the CFCC website for registration dates and register online using WebAdvisor or, if needed, seek assistance in the Academic Advising Center.

College Transfer students (planning to transfer to a 4-year college or university) in AA, AS, or AFA programs should visit the Academic Advising Center for assistance with developing a 4-year degree transfer plan. Then, you can take your plan with you to your advising appointment with your faculty advisor.

Who is my Advisor? A faculty member (instructor) who teaches in your program of study will serve as your academic advisor. Once you start classes at CFCC, you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office with the name of your assigned faculty advisor. Or, for the name of your faculty advisor, check your program evaluation in WebAdvisor or click on “My Profile” under your “Academic Profile” for your assigned advisor’s name and email address. As a reminder, some faculty advisors are not on campus during the summer term.
